  1. show contact organization

    When using the "New Outlook" layout on a Mac and I view a contact, I am not able to see the contact's organization like I did in the 'old' layout. There are times that I want to know who a persons manager is and now I can't do that :-(

  2. I suggest you don't include sent messages when you group conversations

    Including every sent mail in a grouped conversation in your mailbox makes the thread very long, and I don't necessarily want to see the messages I've sent. Plus, they're always available to me in the Sent folder. Please go back to grouping only the new items in a conversation sent by others and excluding those sent by the user. Thank you!

  3. Bring back Notes to Outlook

    The new idea of loading Notes in a web browser rather than the Outlook app is TERRIBLE. It also means that if I don't have a web connection I can't access the Notes. Please bring back Notes to the Outlook app.

  4. Set All Accounts Inbox as Default.

    It would be great if you could set the 'All Accounts: Inbox' as the default inbox to be on when you open Outlook For Mac.

    I have many different email account inboxes, but hate having to select the 'All Inboxes' folder every time I open Outlook. This has been a common feature request that many have suggested already for the Classic Outlook, but it's never been considered so please implement this in the new Outlook for Mac and it will be PERFECT!

    Great work guys, I'm a big fan!

  5. local calendars

    The new version of Outlook is very shiny, but I cannot access any local calendars, my iCloud calendars, or other ics calendars. This is really a basic feature that needs to be incorporated.

  8. End meetings early (25m / 50m)

    Add support to end appointments & meetings early (25m / 50m) so you have time to prepare for the next meeting. Already supported by Outlook for Windows: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f

  9. Add Alias support

    The web based outlook.com and the windows version of outlook 2019 and 365 both support alias support. Only the mac version does not support this. It would be very useful if such support was added.

  10. Find contacts across multiple accounts when creating a new message

    When I create a new email message and begin typing the name of a contact, Outlook should find contacts from all of my mail accounts. This worked in Old Outlook, but in New Outlook it only searches contacts in the current account.

  11. I suggest you give an option to choose if replying a message pops out as a separate window or stays within the reading pane

    I suggest you give an option to choose if replying a message pops out as a separate window or stays within the reading pane.

    Its a convenience for some people. Also I encountered an issue where I was trying to forward an email and then attach another email to it. To do so I choose to "Continue message in a separate window", and then located the other mail to attach, dragged and attached. Everything was normal till here, but when I started typing in the email body, the window suddenly popped-back-in to the reading pane area. This happened to me…

  13. I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email

    I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email body that is highlighted. When a text is highlighted you should be able to create a task quickly from there with being able to link back to the original email as a reference.Inviting people to a task would be a nice touch as well.

  15. Make Profiles Work as Before

    I'm told by your support teams that Profiles no longer work as they did before. I have two Office 365 Exchange accounts in different tenancies, and it seems impossible to have two profiles anymore. Accounts added to one profile bleed into the next and switching between profiles just duplicates the downloading of data into two separate profile folders. I would like Profiles to work as they did before so you can swap between them.

  16. send delay to every message

    In Outlook for Windows I can add a send delay to every message as a rule. I like doing this because it gives me an extra minute or more to change my mind about an email after clicking 'Send'.

    The web version offers a 10-second delay, which is even better than nothing.

  19. Support side-by-side view of more than three calendars

    As soon as you try to view more than three calendars in side-by-side mode, it forces the view to Overlay mode. Some of our users need to be able to view 5 or more calendars in side-by-side mode.
